Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from KAUST, "We produced for the first time asymmetric isoporous PS-b-FED membranes with a 100 nm thin isoporous separating layer using water at morn temperature as coagulant. This was possible by careful selection of the block lengths and the solvent system. FESEM, AFM and TEM measurements were employed to characterize the nanopores of membranes. The pure water fluxes were measured and the flux of membrane was exceptionally high (around 800 Lm(-2) h(-1) bar(-1))."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Protein rejection measurements were carried out for this membrane and the membrane had a retention of about 67% of BSA and 99% of gamma-globulin."
